BREAKING VIDEO: Ivanka Trump Calls The Media And Establishment “Scared of a Trump presidency”.
According to a story in the Detroit Free Press:
To critics who call her father’s temperament “volatile,” Ivanka Trump challenged the characterization, calling her father “incredibly level-headed.”
Now is not the time to start telling Donald Trump to alter his approach after so much success, according to his daughter.
The New York City real estate magnate who has never run for elected office “beat 16 incredibly capable, competent people in the Republican primaries, so it’s not my place to tell him to change his campaigning style,” Ivanka Trump said.
“I think he fights the fights that he feels are important for this country, and he’ll bring that same spirit and that same energy to the White House,” she added. “I think people want somebody who is going to fight for them.”
“I have a very close relationship with my father,” she said. “I always have, since I was a young girl. But over the last decade, I’ve worked right along side of him, side-by-side with both of my adult brothers at the Trump Organization,” she said. “He’s been an amazing parent to me and an amazing father, so we have the great familial connection but we have also worked together as executives.”
In a earlier separate interview Monday with a local TV station, she dismissed the idea that her father has been politically wounded by low poll numbers and is seeking to reset his campaign. She also brushed back an idea floated by her father that Ivanka could join her father’s cabinet, an idea she said she believes was made in tongue-in-cheek.
Donald Trump is “going to be rolling out a very specific plan in the coming weeks, and it’s a very innovative one,” his daughter said in the interview. She described mothers as subjected to a greater level of wage inequality when compared to women overall.
Despite her focus on issues important to women, Ivanka Trump may face an uphill battle in converting some to her father’s cause. Donald Trump’s opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, is leading in recent polls among people just like Ivanka Trump: college-educated white women seen as a critical group in the November election.
Trump’s daughter nevertheless defends her father as already embraced by many who trust him on national security and the economy. Fans flock to his rallies in a sign of their support for his overall message and proven leadership, she said.
“He’s going to be an unbelievable job creator,” Ivanka Trump said.
But she also acknowledged that it is sometimes difficult for her to understand why people don’t see her father as the warm and empathetic man she knows well. Part of the reason, she said, may be that he has been underestimated for far too long.
“They’re scared,” Ivanka Trump said of her father’s harshest critics. “They never thought that he’d be where he is.”
She added that “I think there will be many people who will seek to diminish him.” But Trump said she has faith in the American electorate to decide for themselves.
“Everyone has one vote, and the American people will make up their own minds,” she said. “And they are coming out in droves in support of his fresh perspective, his honesty, his candor, his bold version for the future of this country. And the support has been tremendous.”
